Barbiturates are drugs that act as central nervous system (CNS) depressants, and by virtue of this they produce a wide spectrum of effects, from mild sedation to anesthesia. Some are also used as anticonvulsants. Barbiturates are believed to be GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) agonists, acting on the GABA-A receptor. GABA is the principal inhibitory neurotransmitter in the mammalian CNS. Answered by Kathrine Bellus 2 years ago.

Barbiturates are powerful depressants that slow down the central nervous system (CNS). Classified as sedative/hypnotics, they include amobarbital (e.g. Amytal), pen obarbital (e.g. Nembutal), phenobarbital (e.g. Luminal), secobarbital (e.g. Seconal), and the combination amobarbital-secobarbital (e.g. Tuinal). (Note that where a drug name is capitalized, it is a registered trade name of the manufacturer.) Answered by Jack Collinsworth 2 years ago.

What are barbiturates?
Asked by Mitchell Groulx 2 years ago.
Firstly Wikipedia is NEVER a legitimate source of infomration The following is from Medscape from the article Barbiturate Toxicity- Barbiturates are the earliest class of sedative-hypnotic agents to be developed and were once extremely popular drugs of abuse. Today, barbiturates are commonly used in geriatric suicide involving medication overdose. In one New York City study, 27.2% of fatal overdose suicide cases in the elderly were due to barbiturates. Interestingly enough, two other popular sedative-hypnotic drugs, propofol and ketamine, have had a rise in their abuse. In fact, 18% of academic anesthesiology departments surveyed have reported a case of propofol abuse or diversion in the past 10 years, a 5-fold increase from prior studies. Ketamine has become one of the mainstream club drugs, rising from 25% use among nightclub goers in the United Kingdom in 1999 to 40% in 2003. In general, sedative-hypnotic drugs are nonselective in their effects. At lower doses, a reduction in restlessness and emotional tension occurs. At increasingly higher doses, sedation is followed by increasing levels of anesthesia and eventually death. Benzodiazepines have largely replaced barbiturates for outpatient medical therapy, with a subsequent decline in barbiturate abuse. Stricter guidelines dictating barbiturate use have also contributed to their decreased availability. Though tolerance occurs to the sedative-hypnotic effects, no tolerance appears to develop to the level at which lethal toxicity occurs. Barbiturates background infomration (DEA): Barbiturates were first introduced for medical use in the early 1900s. More than 2,500 barbiturates have been synthesized, and at the height of their popularity, about 50 were marketed for human use. Today, about a dozen are in medical use. Barbiturates produce a wide spectrum of central nervous system depression, from mild sedation to coma, and have been used as sedatives, hypnotics, anesthetics, and anticonvulsants. The primary differences among many of these products are how fast they produce an effect and how long those effects last. Barbiturates are classified as ultrashort, short, intermediate, and long-acting. The ultrashort-acting barbiturates produce anesthesia within about one minute after intravenous administration. Those in current medical use are the Schedule IV drug methohexital (Brevital®), and the Schedule III drugs thiamyl (Surital®) and thiopental (Pentothal®). Barbiturate abusers prefer the Schedule II short-acting and intermediate-acting barbiturates that include amobarbital (Amyta®), pentobarbital (Nembutal®), secobarbital (Seconal®), and Tuinal (an amobarbital/secobarbital combination product). Other short and intermediate-acting barbiturates are in Schedule III and include butalbital (Fiorina®), butabarbital (Butisol®), talbutal (Lotusate®), and aprobarbital (Alurate®). After oral administration, the onset of action is from 15 to 40 minutes, and the effects last up to six hours. These drugs are primarily used for insomnia and preoperative sedation. Veterinarians use pentobarbital for anesthesia and euthanasia. Long-acting barbiturates include phenobarbital (Luminal®) and mephobarbital (Mebaral®), both of which are in Schedule IV. Effects of these drugs are realized in about one hour and last for about 12 hours, and are used primarily for daytime sedation and the treatment of seizure disorder.
